QUOTES ABOUT TOMMY

 

Tommy Denander has always been the consummate live player, and I have recently found out that he is the consummate studio guitarist as well!

Excellent and so egoless to work with, great player, great feel and perfectionist too!

 

ROBERT "MUTT" LANGE

Tommy Denander is my "mail order" guitar whiz. Whenever I have a particular guitar problem I need solved right away, I send my files through the ether to the land of ice and snow and Tommy pours hot lava on them. He is intuitive and sublimely musical. He's a modern guitar player with enough of a grounding in classic guitar music to make him a Guitar Man For All Seasons!

His songs are also heard around the world and his ears for spotting new talent are the best around!

Tommy's combination of chops and soul is beyond impressive, and he does it all with great timing and an awesome sound. He's also on the cutting edge of guitar technology, raising the bar for intonation and tone. A consummate pro.

Tommy is one of the rarest of musicians, one that has risen above technique, into his own strata of style that is beyond description. What can you say about someone who can play rings around just about everyone except, "WOW!" or "Holy Shit!!!".. I am very honored to be his friend and to get to work with him.

Tommy and I met and his guitar playing was so inspiring we wrote 5 songs in a day. He has a natural sense of song structure and a wealth of good ideas but his phrasing and note choice are a cut above.

 

RICKY PHILLIPS

(Bassist Styx, Coverdale - Page)

----------------------------------------

 

In the few years that I have known him personally and worked with him it's been nothing less than pure energy and and sheer genius! From his playing to his writing and producing he is stream lined and focused. There are only a few people in this world that I have been so fortunate to know over the years that I can say this about..... Thanks to People like Tommy Denander I personally have been uplifted and reunited with the art of song writing and musicianship that rivals the 5 star players of the world... Move over Desmond Child and Mutt Lange... you got company!

Tommy's THE burnin', killer guitar player. He transformed my new project...and he's a nice guy! :-)

 

DAVID DIGGS

(Producer Quincy Jones, Brothers Johnson)

----------------------------------------

 

Recently in Los Angeles, Tommy and I wrote for my new album. He is an incredible talent! His melodic sense is amazing, and he really gets what the 'hook' thing is all about. "I Can't Cry" is easily the best song on the new album, and is a definite hit song!

 

STAN BUSH

(Emmy winning song writer and artist)

I was very moved by the piece that Tommy played in conjunction with Jason Becker. It was a wonderful thing to do, for all the right reasons, and I am very glad to be associated at all with it!
